Groundwork Farmers Market Off to a Great Start!

We're glad to see all those who have come out to the Groundwork Farmers Markets! The first week has come to a close and the second week is just underway. We fought the weather a little bit yesterday but stuck it out and were still able to make some sales, have a poetry reading, storytelling and more!

The Groundwork Farmers Markets feature a wide variety of local produce, as well as crafts. Since assuming management of the downtown market in 2006, Groundwork Lawrence has sought to increase access to the market for all shoppers by accepting SNAP/EBT (food stamps), Food and Vegetables Prescription Program, credit and debit cards and working to increase the redemption of WIC and Senior Farmers Market coupons. Today, the market provides a lively gathering place for the whole community with free attractions such as live entertainment, family activities and cultural and educational exhibits.
